Gluten Free In San Fran

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm going to an American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco this spring. I need to find places I can eat gluten free hopping through airports and while actually in San Fran. My poor travel companions will be so tired of Chili's if I don't. Also, I'm going to find it a bit awkward forcing 6 other people to eat at a certain place because I have Celiac's. The alcohol selection is going to be bad enough. Can anybody help?

I had good luck with the 2 Mexican restaurants that I tried this April. One was Colibri at 438 Geary Street. The first time I ate there, I had the Pechuga Rellena de Huitlacoche, which is chicken breast stuffed with a mix of huitlacoche , zucchini and fresh corn, served over a roasted garlic sauce. The second time, I had margaritas, tortillas with guacamole and quesadillas. The other restaurant was Mamacita at 2317 Chestnut Street. I don't recall what I had there. Both restaurants were very accommodating, and I didn't have a reaction at either place.

I also had meals at the following restaurants:

The Cliff House. 1090 Point Lobos. Great views, but the food was nothing to write home about. I had the Southwest Mole Rubbed Pork Tenderloin

Thank you so much. I'll keep those in mind. The other people going will probably love the burger place. Especially Dr. Mencer. When we were in Salt Lake City last year, he insisted on going to get a Bison burger, even though it was $20 for the burger without sides, if I recall correctly. I checked and Colibri is fairly close to the area of San Francisco where we'll be staying. The others are pretty far though.

During the week, one of my friends at the conference rented a car which is how we got to the Cliff House. My friend came into town (with a car!) at the end of the week so we were able to eat at places all around town. That was definitely helpful.

Good luck and let us know where you go!

There is a GREAT Gluten-Free bakery called Mariposa Bakery (it's actually a kiosk of their main bakery, which is located in Oakland) in the Ferry Building, which is located on the Embarcadero. You can get there either by taking BART to the Embarcadero station & walking about 3min to the Ferry Building, or taking MUNI to the Ferry Building.

SF is a haven for gluten-free folks. I was recently diagnosed & have already found a load of helpful people & places to eat.
